‘Whatever-You-Got-Ramen’ – Ramen cooking hacks with Cameron Diaz
Actress Cameron Diaz has offered up a new cooking tutorial on her Instagram for her fans – letting us know easy ramen is definitely one of her go-to dishes.
Diaz shared her recipe for what she described as “Whatever-You-Got Ramen” – meaning anything and everything you have in your kitchen cupboards.
In the caption, Diaz said: “One of my favourite quick go-to meals where I take your classic instant ramen packet and dress it up a bit with whatever vegetables I happen to have in my fridge!”
In Cameron’s case, these fresh ingredients included broccoli, celery, shallots, garlic, sesame oil and more.
“I’m going to show you how to cut up all those ingredients. Again, it’s all about proportions and wanting everything to cook at the same speed. And also when you take a bite you’re getting all of the flavours together,” she continued.
What about flavour? She explained she has two secret cooking hacks.
“Instead of using water, as instructed on the instant ramen packet, I use a stock. I love a chicken stock, you can use a vegetable stock, you can use beef stock,” she told fans.
I feel like that’s part of my success in this whole thing, it’s like flavour layering, you know?
Cameron uses two flavour packets – in this case, ginger and lemongrass and garlic and pepper. She joked: “I’m crazy like that.”
After cooking the dish, she adds a squeeze of lime juice and cilantro.
“Below is what I used in my ramen, but feel free to use whatever you have that fits your flavor profile & enjoy!
“My recipe: 2 ramen insta packs (Flavors: Lemongrass ginger & Garlic pepper), 3 cups of chicken stock, about 1/2 cup each of diced carrot, celery, shiitake mushrooms, broccoli,” she explained, before adding: “About 1 tablespoon each of diced garlic, shallot, ginger & crunchy garlic chilli sauce, 1 tsp sesame oil, 1 egg, juice from 1/2 a lime, 1 tsp of rice vinegar, roughly chopped cilantro to finish.”
